CHEC (Child Health Evaluation and Care) Program
CHEC is a part of the Utah State Medicaid Program for children ages 0-21 who qualify for Medicaid. It provides preventative medical and dental care for Utah’s Medicaid children. Medicaid ensures that the child has access to necessary checkups. Having regular checkups allows the child to be evaluated, implementing any necessary follow-ups.
Weber-Morgan Health Department participates in the CHEC Program by providing courtesy calls to Medicaid patients to remind them to take advantage of their benefits.
Benefits include preventative physicals, hearing and vision screenings, mental health care, as well as access to all necessary immunizations. If there are additional medical concerns, CHEC works with the doctor insuring the child is given appropriate and necessary care. CHEC dental provides an impressive preventative program. This includes two dental examinations per year, x-rays, sealants, fluoride and necessary restoration work.
